UI Layouts Hotkey/Button

Recommended Posts



Is there a way to bind hotkey to layout preset (modeling/sculpting etc...)? Or make buttons on panel for different layouts? Thanks. 


P.S. Yes, there is 'Switch Layout' command/button but it only shows list of all layouts.

I wanted this for myself recently and found a script.  


import c4d, os
from c4d import gui, documents
#Welcome to the world of Python

def main():

if __name__=='__main__':


Just replace masrs1.l4d with your layout name.

    I've made setup for scripts / palettes if anyone is interested. Read 'install.txt' for instructions.
